About the Arborio P.G.I. rice, it is widely appreciated for its features. The grain is large&pearly and increases its volume during the cooking. It absorbs a lot of cooking liquid yet still retains a good ‘bite’ when cooked. It’s used for
preparing risotto and every kind of rice recipes.
Carnaroli P.G.I. rice keeps its shape better than other forms of rice during the cooking required due to higher quantities of amylose present within. It’s particularly indicated for making risotto and great recipes.
Our rice is 100% from Italy.
Our company buys paddy rice which comes mainly from the basso ferrarese and basso veneto area, straddling the Delta del Po one.
The high rice quality of this area depends upons the fertile microclimate which benefit the paddy fields.
The delta del Po fields are rich of microelements which limit the use of pesticides and herbicides.
